Under its new brand and visual identity, Delphi will present its industry leading GDi service program, including the new Excalibur GDi test bench, a full-service steering solution and additions to its braking and engine management lines.
BOLOGNA, ITALIA – At Autopromotec Bologna (22-26 May), Delphi will showcase how it’s helping distributors and garages prepare for servicing new vehicles with an extensive range of OE and aftermarket solutions. With a proven capability in state-of-the-art OE engine management and powertrain control technologies, the company has an intimate understanding of the specialist requirements of this sector.
Saverio Valsecchi, Country Director Italy, Delphi Aftermarket said: “We are in a period of unprecedented change. The growth of new vehicle technologies such as gasoline direct injection and powertrain electrification represents a significant opportunity for the aftermarket, but only for those with the right parts, tools and know-how. At this year’s Autopromotec, we’ll be demonstrating how we’re helping garages service these increasingly complex, electronically controlled vehicles and take advantage of the high-value business that they generate.”
Products on display on the Delphi stand - Hall 16, Stand F6 - include its latest OE hybrid and electric vehicle technology, as well as a new GDi service program and enhancements to its core programs including steering, braking and engine management.
GDi service program
Delphi’s new GDi service program is just one example of how the company is using its deep understanding of the latest vehicle technologies to help its independent aftermarket customers. Most recently, it launched the Hartridge Excalibur GDi Master. The latest generation all makes test solution, which uses the same platform as the Sabre CRi series and Toledo HEUi Master, gives workshops the ability to test both GDi and PFi systems in as little as five minutes. Together with OE parts, diagnostic tools and training, distributors and garages will be able to take advantage of one of the fastest growing areas of vehicle repair.
Enhancements to core aftermarket portfolio
At the show, Delphi will also demonstrate how its core aftermarket portfolio of brakes, steering, air conditioning, ignition, engine management and fuel injection systems are providing technicians with high-quality repair and service parts. New additions include a full-service solution for steering with all the parts needed for right, first-time fitment in the box, first-to-market brake pads and significant new-to-range sensors including a new line of exhaust gas temperature and diesel exhaust pressure sensors.
Refreshed brand and premium packaging
The show will also provide a platform for the company to present its vibrant new aftermarket packaging to the Italian market. Featuring the Delphi logo and colorways, the new packaging comes in both a wallpaper print and a retail design for products such as brakes, steering and fueling. A new design, using higher quality materials, will offer better protection during transit and storage, whilst optimizing space on the distributor’s shelf.
